Zuckerberg & Sandberg Have Been Summoned To Appear In Front Of Canadian Parliamentary Committee

Facebook’ Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg have been slapped with a summons to appear in front of Canadian MPs on the House of Commons access to information, privacy and ethics committee. This after the duo flipped the committee in question off:

In an unprecedented move on Tuesday, Canadian MPs on the House of Commons access to information, privacy and ethics committee — which is hosting international policy-makers as part of the International Grand Committee — voted to hit the top bosses at the social media giant with an order to appear without a time limit and direct the chair of the committee to reconvene the members even if the chamber is not sitting.

In theory, that means that if Zuckerberg or Sandberg were to come north for a conference, a bailiff would issue a summons as soon as they arrive on Canadian soil and order them to appear before the House of Commons access to information, privacy and ethics committee.

If this sounds familiar, it should. Zuckerberg pulled the same stunt with the UK not too long ago with the same result. Which is if he sets foot on UK soil, he’ll be picked up and taken in front of Parliament. If he keeps this behavior up, he won’t have very many places that he can to go. But his immediate problem is that this makes Zuckerberg and Sandberg look like people who do not want to be held accountable, nor do they want to answer the tough questions as leaders of a global company. That makes their respective reputations look shambolic. I for one hope that many more countries do what Canada and the UK are doing so that Facebook and these two dimwits who run it can be held fully accountable for their missteps.
